Brown, Beck and Dunn Grab Major SAC Postseason Women's Soccer Honors


ROCK HILL, S.C. ( -- Catawba took home three of the major postseason awards for the 2021 South Atlantic Conference Women’s Soccer Spring season as announced on Tuesday by the league office. Defender Katie Beck was named the SAC Defensive Player of the Year, forward Hannah Dunn was selected as the conference Freshman of the Year and Nick Brown was voted as the Coach of the Year. Carson-Newman University forward Emilee Futrell was voted as the Offensive Player of the Year.

In addition to the major awards, Catawba placed seven players on the All-SAC teams with four first-time honorees. Joining Dunn and Beck on the first team were midfielders Jovana Sanchez and Sharon Mayes. Garnering second team nods were forward Helen Summerell, midfielder Sarah Bissett and defender Katie Webb.
Beck, a junior, anchored a Catawba Indian defense that surrendered just two goals in seven regular season matches this spring. In addition to leading the Catawba Indians to a No. 1 seed in the SAC Women’s Soccer Spring Tournament, Beck netted a goal and had an assist. She also earned SAC AstroTurf Defensive Player of the Week honors on March 3. 
Dunn was an offensive threat for the Catawba Indians each time she touched the field. She helped lead Catawba to a 5-1 SAC record during pod play, as she scored a goal and registered an assist for three points. Dunn finished the year with 12 shots, six of which were on goal.
Brown led the Catawba Indians to a No. 1 seed in the SAC Women’s Soccer Spring Tournament and a record of 5-1 in league play. His team allowed just two goals during regular season play and scored nine goals. They finished second in the league in shots with 110 and were tied for first in goals against average, allowing just 0.38 goals per game.

Sanchez played in all seven regular season matches and put seven of her nine shots on goal. Mayes had two goals during the regular season, both of which were game-winners. She had the lone goal in a 1-0 win over Lenoir-Rhyne and in a 1-0 season-opening win over Tusculum.

Summerell had a team-high four goals in the regular season and added an assist. She earned league player of the week honors after notching a hat-trick in a win at Wingate. Bissett is second to Summerell with 11 shots on goal over her seven matches. Webb helped the defense to five shutouts in seven regular season matches and a 0.38 goals against average.
